January will soon be rolling around, and as we all deal with festive hangovers and severely dented bank accounts there is light on the horizon. Keen to kick-start the new year with restaurants full of diners and drinkers, businesses across Greater Manchester will be slashing their prices throughout January. We also heartily believe that January is the worst possible time of year to start a new diet or survive without a wine, so instead treat yourself to a cosy night out full of food.

It's one of the most luxurious properties in Cheshire - and yet it's been waiting for a buyer for years. The once bleak call centre building has been transformed into one of Cheshire’s most luxurious residential properties by Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward and footballer husband Ashley - but has been looking for a buyer since 2013. Warford Hall is an 11-bedroom mansion situated in the idyllic countryside location of Great Warford, just minutes from affluent Alderley Edge. The sprawling manor house was designed by W Roberts and built in 1867 using mellow Cheshire red brick and carved, dressed Alderley Edge stone. Boasting six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in the main house, with a further five beds in two additional flats, this is one seriously substantial property.

About half way through the launch press conference for the new Kia Ceed, senior engineer Gert-Jan Teunis explained the chassis changes they’d made to the third generation of this workaday hatchback. Still the same front MacPherson struts and multi-link independent rear suspension, but with a litany of spring, damper, geometry, steering ratio and roll-bar changes as long as your arm, and so much softening at the back you’d wonder how the old car got around corners at all. These are the sorts of things that race teams do, finessing and tittivating to make a car that grips, handles predictably and inspires confidence. Under Albert Biermann, formerly of BMW, that’s what Kia is doing; more than that, in fact, since it is also creating a legend and a driving characteristic for all Kia cars in much the same way that Richard Parry-Jones’s team at Ford did for the 1993 Mondeo and the 1998 Focus.
